New 7.1 Earthquake Hits Southern California

The newest earthquake’s epicenter was about 10 miles north northeast of Ridgecrest, California., about 150 Northeast of Los Angeles.

The Ridgecrest area has had more than 100 aftershocks since Thursday’s earthquake and experts warn there could be more to come.

There is no tsunami warning for the area.
